Sunrise Temecula Balloon Flight

293 reviews
Take flight in a hot air balloon as the sun rises on this trip that leaves from a winery in Temecula, Calif. Glide over citrus groves and vineyards and look across the horizon at mountains while floating in your balloon. An FAA-licensed, fully certified pilot serves as your guide. After landing, you return to the vineyard to enjoy a light breakfast with mimosas in a private rose garden.

We experienced an unwelcome visit here at Fazeli Cellars. What started as a decent visit turned into an uncomfortable stay. The first time we were approached, we were going to take a picture sitting on a ledge. We were told it was not allowed because of safety. Understandable. Then we were stopped mid-shoot again due to the way the black dress displayed in the first 2 photos. Also understandable so we did an outfit change and continued on. After literally the last picture, we were approached to wrap it up. Mind you I asked if photos were ok from the jump and they said it was okay so I don't know what the issue was especially since we were paying customers minding our business. I was told to speak to the owner. I went over to the owner to explain how I loved the architecture and art surrounding the venue and how I wanted to show everyone how nice it is. He then tells me how he doesn't need my advertising along with how he doesn't like how my pictures are being portrayed. (Mind you he hasn't seen a single photo) I left it at that since I already knew it was a discrimination thing. Then we were blamed for "smashing glasses" after I dropped one glass cup on the stairs prior to leaving. I will never go back. Zero Stars. Very Ghetto.

Came here for a photoshoot, the wine was amazing however the customer service needs improvement. Upon arriving, the photographer and I asked one of the servers if we were allowed to shoot in the location. She asked and said it wasn’t an issue. Once we started shooting, another server came and rudely told us to shut down the shoot, with no explanation or reasoning. I asked if it was but of my dress because my dress was a little revealing, she said yes so I changed to a less revealing dress. After about 45 minutes of shooting the same server came back told us to shoot down the shoot again with no explanation again. At this point I’m assuming it is because I am a black woman in their space. Never again will I attend this winery ran by a pretentious, prejudice owner.

My wife and I immediately joined the Fazeli Cellars Wine Club after tasting their unique wines over two years ago! The winery is beautiful with its large staircase and the area for wine club members has a fun vibe with a TV and outdoor patio. The food is delicious and the servers are very polite and hard working. We attended the Fazeli Salsa Dancing social event (pre-Covid) and had a blast! We continue to visit Fazeli at least once per month, even during Covid restrictions. The staff wears masks and socially distance. Cheers!

Oh my, I loved it here! I ordered a glass of the red Ferdowsi wine, and the hummus. The hummus was alright, and I can't speak on their other food items, but the wines were delicious! They are priced a bit higher than other wineries in the area, but the glass I had was incredibly smooth, full bodied and delicious. The grounds are absolutely gorgeous, and I had so much fun wandering the passageways with my wine glass. Would definitely visit again.

The two of us ate luncheon in the COVID compliant, smaller indoor/outdoor patio. There is also a much larger outdoor, but sun screened patio, that one walks across from the long flight of stairs to get to the gift shop and tasting room area. The space is large providing for hoards on more normal times but today the crowd was light - but filled the well spaced tables. A massive commercial cooling fan produced welcome blasts of cooled air that made short work of the outside 100+ temperature and provided a pleasant, but windy, ambiance. The eclectic menu of standard American coffee shop dishes and a range of eastern Mediterranean food offered something for everyone, from small appetizer platters to huge flatbreads. Corey took trouble to suggest some wines that well suited the food that we ordered. Again the range is broad from light whites to full bodied reds. The Dolma were on the small side but the Steak and Blue flatbread was a tasters delight. We thought that pricing of the wines at $12-16 a glass for a well controlled pour was on the higher side, as with the food at $14 for a plain Caesar salad and $18 for a ham and cheese sandwich baguette. Service was fast and informal with disposable plates and utensils - probably COVID driven (let’s hope this does not become a standard post COVID). With few people parking was easy, although the sloping nature of the site created much uphill walking and three long flights of stairs to get the the restaurant.
